Description

From the original foreword- “From time to time a letter from Mrs. Newsome has come to me, always with a little poem, and from time to time I have discovered other poems of hers, in the pages of anthologies and newspapers, and always they gave me such pleasure that I was happy to learn that her verse was to be presented in a book. She has written it especially for children, but it will have charm and significance for grown-ups. The spirit of kindness, of gentle insight, and of quiet understanding underlies even the gayest of her fantasies. I feel that she makes a very real contribution, not only to verse for children but to the spirit of our time.”-Mary Hastings Bradley.

This edition is presented with all 77 of the original illustrations and a new foreword by Amber O’Neal Johnston from www.heritagemom.com.
